“So I’m your huntress and thief?” His hands slid down to cup the backs of my knees as he said with a roguish grin, “You are my salvation, Feyre.” .

Sunday vibes 📚 After an extremely productive morning I am so ready hang out, sip a G&T, continue to read some books I've been working on, and try to decide what to read next! How do y'all stick to a tbr?! I'm too much of a mood reader, I guess. #bookstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #currentlyreading #reading #books #booksandbooze #instabooks #gin #sunday #cocktailtime

Good morning! So I'm trying something new this month - a May Friends themed photo challenge set by @thesqueakycupboard

Day 1 - How you doin? #squeakybookishlibrary
#photochallenge
Today I'm showing you one of my TBR this month that is actually a to be re-read. It has been years since I've read it and a while since I've seen the movies so now seems like a good time to go through this amazing series again!
-
Should I explain my #nanoblock creations? Does it look like a letter from #hogwarts , a Sorting Hat, #gryffindor and a wand? OK good, I was hoping you would say yes! 😋
Looking forward to seeing everyone's photos!

#bookishpotter17 - triwizard tournament + favorite spell + chosen one
🏆
Time to wrap up this challenge! Can't believe April's practically over.
🏆
I think my favorite spell is expecto patronum but I really like saying finite incantatem.
🏆
Hermione: Hey! She's only interested in you because she thinks you're the Chosen One.
Harry: But I am the Chosen One. Sorry... kidding!
🏆
That scene in the Half-Blood Prince movie always makes me laugh. There were a lot of humorous moments in that movie.

The Doodle Library (@doodlelibrary)

In Humbert Humbert, Nabokov has created the ultimate anti-hero – handsome, intelligent and in love with a twelve year old. He marries his landlady to get closer to her and the two end up on a road trip around the country. While he seduces Lolita, he seduces the reader too, and it's testament to the writing that you don't end up hating him completely. This book is disturbing and hilarious in equal measures.

Psyche Inventory was a dream that blossomed in the midst of deadly storms that were raging in the beginning of this year. Though my spirit was strong, my soul needed an outlet to breathe, to grow and heal and reincarnate after the hazardous beginning to 2017 that I had. Thanks to my amazing circle who continue to support me, I was able, after many months of speculation, consistent doubt, rethought and hesitation, to embark on this positive journey, a beginning that I almost thought that I didn't have the courage to make. Beginnings are the hardest for me, but once that hurdle is overcome, everything else is a treat.

So, what is Psyche Inventory? Well, this is a platform of expression, of empowerment. This will be my canvas, where I will paint my experiences and observations of life to a global audience. This will be where I promote good energy, a safe abode, a presence of peace that you can count on, where you can retreat to at any time, no matter what you may be going through in your life. This is will be a gallery of my encounters, where I will share the work done by the most amazing writers and artists, as well as myself. This is where your heart can rest, a place where you can drink in mindful empowerment through stunning creativity. This will be a blog, a store, with a collection of all good things, a continuous outlet of joy and positivity.
This is where I will set off to discover myself, and I humbly ask you this: Will you join me in my journey?

I sure hope that you will. 🌹 xx

Follow my new page @psychinventory for more updates.

A big shoutout to my kind friend @thesarahdoughty for constantly supporting me in my endeavours and for being a source of kindness, hope and strength to me from the beginning. You are greatly appreciated, and I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. 🙏💛 xx

P.S. Website, Online Store and Facebook page coming real soon. In the meantime, follow us on Twitter (PsycheInventory). Thankyou!3

Day 1 of #YAmatterschallenge - one-word title. Pureheart by Cassandra Golds is set in a peculiar building that holds many secrets. A pure heart in religious terms is someone who is extremely devout. You don't have to be even a tiny bit religious to enjoy this story (I should know) but both Deirdre and Cal, whose tale it is, have a striking kind of purity that lends this the quality of a fairytale. Exquisitely written, rather whimsical, drawing on King Arthur but also meditating on bullying, isolation and .... true love. ❤️

I finally started re-reading ACOTAR last night! ACOWAR is released tomorrow (😱) but my pre-order hasn't even shipped yet so it'll probably get here next week, which gives me plenty of time to re-read this and ACOMAF too. I have a long day at uni today but i might do some sneaky reading during my breaks instead of working on assignments...

Book: American War by Omar El Akkad. My rating: 3/5
.
.
I'm a huge fan of dystopian novels. The Road is one of my all time favorites, I loved Station Eleven, and I am still very excited about Hulu's version of The Handmaid's Tale. When I saw a dystopian novel as one of my BOTM choices, I had to read it.
.
.
American War is set in the not too distant future and follows the story of Sarat from her childhood near the banks of the (now much larger) Mississippi through her radicalization during the second American civil war. The world has been forever altered by climate change, and when the south refuses to give up the use of fossil fuels, a war begins.
.
.
Sarat and her family live for a time in a refugee camp, where she meets a mysterious man who teaches her about the world before while simultaneously training her to hate a"Blues" (northerners). As the violence of war continually affects Sarat and the people she loves, she does not sit idly by but takes up arms for the Southern cause. Sarat is constantly motivated by her desire for revenge.
.
.
This book was especially scary because the imminent threat posed by climate change makes Akkad's imagining of the future believable. However, as a whole I never felt truly connected with Sarat or any of the book's characters. While I enjoyed this book overall, I don't feel compelled to recommend it to others.

Challenges, day 30:
🌷#readfoldbloom - National honesty day: What character do you admire for their honesty? I'll say Kaz... he can avoid important details but he's always straight forward about his opinion!
🌷#aprilacotarbookchallenge - 2 days before ACOWAR: well I'm almost done and it's worth the wait 🌷#acourtofdreamsapril - book and drink: this is a water bottle I had to do for a project, obviously Rhysand inspired! 😉
🌷#accioaprilbooks - wrap up, did you, didn't you? And #starswholistenapril - considerable (wingspan) wrap up: in April, I read:
✨Wolf by Wolf✨Caraval ✨Crooked Kingdom ✨A Court of Mist and Fury✨almost finished A Court of Wings and Ruin✨read half of Catalyst!
Not too bad! •

Bag of Bones
Tagged by three awesome bookstagramers @ewanwardell @gowsy33 and @morrisongrl for #creepycovers ☠️
I don't think I own many creepy covers, but this one immediately came to mind because of this screaming woman on the cover. For some reason, every time I see it I feel as if I can almost hear the scream rising off the page.
The story was one of the earliest King books I read and I loved it. After I finished it, I was like, wait a minute, this is actually kind of a basic ghost story. But there is nothing basic about King's writing. Recommended if you haven't read it yet.
